Nearly 100,000 children's toys being recalled

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WATE) - Nearly 100,000 children's toys are being recalled because of a serious ingestion hazard.    

Dunecraft is pulling its Water Balz, Growing Skulls, "Despicable Me" H20 Orbs and Fabulous Flowers toys from store shelves. The marble-sized toys absorb water and grow up to 400 times their original size. If a child swallows the toy, it expands inside the body and causes a blockage in the small intestine. The only way to remove the toy is through surgery.    

Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and contact Dunecraft at 1-800-306-4168 for a free replacement toy. More information on the recall is available on the Consumer Product Safety Commission's website.
